    With all the therapists at Movement, you get way more 1-on-1 time than you get at the big names. You're also getting a therapist who stays current with the new developments in recovery science and someone who tailors the program to your goals. This is the thing that really sets them apart - every body is different in the way it recovers and the treatment needs to follow that.

    There are many adjectives that describe Sam Shah at Movement Physical Therapy. He is professional, caring, attentive, focused, and observant. He also has the rare ability to troubleshoot multiple injuries simultaneously. Most importantly, Sam is a skillful listener and explains well.

    I recently completed therapy at Movement following a knee replacement and have only good things to say about it. My therapist, Lindsay, was the right combination of caregiver and drill sergeant. I accomplished a lot much sooner than I thought I would and felt good doing it.

    These other reviews are spot on about the quality of care provided by Sam and Jeremy. I'm a PT student who has battled back and knee pain issues for 8 yrs, and Sam and Jeremy are some of the best PTs I have had as a patient (and there have been a lot!). In fact, I made a yelp account specifically so that I could give this review.

    Don't think about going to the franchised chains like Athletico. Come here instead...you'll get so much more out of it. Sam knows what he is doing...seriously. I was going to Athletico before but they follow the same cookie cutter formula with everyone.

    Two months after my ACL surgery, I came to Chicago for a four month business trip. The knee was still lacking a good range of motion when I started, but I experienced great improvement over my time with Jeremy at Movement. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking professional expertise, friendly conversations, and timely communication. Thank you for everything!

    Sam and his team are great, I had knee pain for a long time since I tore my ACL 10 years ago, I started seeing Sam on a regular basis and by following his recommendations my knee feels pain free on a constant basis. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for PT.

    An exceptional experience. There are several employees and I worked only with Jeremy and am basing my review largely on him. For starters this is no physical therapy mill like you find so often. BTW, avoid those places. I have recently had some major issues with my lower back and shoulder. Jeremy is no only a remarkable therapist, but educates throughout the process and of course gives homework .
